campaign and people who are fighting guns when they see some of these crazy people like we see in marco rubio. >> does he really think banning assault weapons is going to stop mass murder? >> he believe that is, i think he believes in this and thinks this is huge. >> he's not a hypocrite he really believes his public policy. >> i think the president is not a believer in the second amendment, although states he is. the second amendment's in the constitution. i didn't write it, neither did you or he. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution or wants to reform it, have the guts to admit that. >> cenk: these guys all i didn't write the constitution. oh really, you didn't? you look 131 didn't write the constitution. the sub stops of it, second amendment, it says a well-regulated militia. do you believe in it or not? if you don't have a well regulated militia, shut up about it. >> they completely ignore it. what obama is calling for is totally common sense. there's no question about it. first of all his executive orders are common sense. what's wrong with background c
important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on board. host: we are awaiting the luncheon, which will be wrapping up shortly, and we will hear from the speaker of the house, as well as the president, and at truck schumer, lamar alexander comedy cochairs of the joint congressional committee -- and chuck schumer, lamar alexander, the cochairs of the joint congressional committee on the inauguration. there was a sense of bipartisanship, at least to
based on what senator marco rubio of florida, republican, has put out there. he's put some ideas out there. do you -- do you endorse liz ideas? guest: i have not spoken to senator rubio yet, but we welcome those ideas. there are others in the house that are working on specific proposals and wider ranging proposals, and we want to take a look at this. you know, we are a nation of immigrants. there is not a person to be found who's a u.s. citizen who can't go back a few generations or several generations and find someone in their family who came to the united states to better their lives. my grandfather came from germany. my wife's parents came from ireland. this is a very, very common thing. we are also a nation of laws. so finding a way to address this issue and fix a very broken immigration system will entail looking at a lot of different pieces of this, including enforcement and what you do with the millions of people who are not lawfully in the united states today. so we're willing to look at all those things and see what kind of common ground we can find. we're prepared to see ho
. the "new york times," senator marco rubio is attempting to rally fellow republicans around the idea of major immigration reform, advocating for fair treatment for foreigners who play by the rules but not rule out legal status for those who enter the country illegally. representative paul ryan has already endorsed rubio's plan. legislators find 39 states are not considering new gun regulations and some may relax their gun laws. having more guns available for self-defense may curb gun violence. >>> the "washington post." clarence thomas broke a 7-year silence during oral arguments. what he was saying was unclear. sources say he was joking about the ivy league and the k transcript only partially showed what he said. he hasn't spoken since 1996. >>> walmart plans to hire any veteran who wants a job and officials project it will lead to 100,000 veterans in five years. >> that's a promise, significant. >> great news. also really quickly again, we want to show while we're doing the papers, the daily news, nra, coming up on the anniversary of newtown, where 20 young children were killed, ha
, featuring marco rubio and his plan for immigration reform. the headline is that he pushes his party on immigration changes and is taking a leading role among republicans on proposals to overhaul the immigration system. and evangelical groups are also pushing for changes to u.s. immigration laws. a small piece in the washington times. in other news this morning, on the supreme court, justice clarence thomas spoke and it made news, because he has not spoken in open court for nearly seven years. back to your phone calls, is the debt ceiling negotiable? tom an independent caller in michigan. caller: nice to be able to have free speech on the airwaves on television. out right after they did that last tax hike on us, they said if we don't do something to control our unsustainable debt, they will downgrade us to aa1. if we had the dictator in chief to raise the debt ceiling and they don't do anything about spending, we're getting downgraded. he is working against the interest of the people by doing that. we have to do something about spending. host: people are saying there are several diff
with the sweeping new gun control proposals they say released yesterday. republican senator marco rubio says the newt town shooting gave mr. obama the political footing he needed to take on gun rights in america. here is with bill o'reilly on the factor last night. >> i think this is what he wanted to do with his entire political career. he uses opportunity to do it and use every rhetorical device to do it. >> does he think banning assault weapons will stop mass murder? >> i think he believes that. the president doesn't have guts to say it doesn't believe in the second amendment. the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution. neither did you. neither did he. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution have the guts to admit that. bill: there is lot of reaction. monica crowley, radio talk show host, doug cone, former advisor to president bill clinton. morning to both of you. what do you think about what senator rubio said about the president and second amendment. >> there is lot of wariness and caution on the republican side. they are worri
of respect for marco rubio. we disagree on some things, agree on others. i found him to be very open in his views. i'll seek that. i'll talk to those who are on border states, southern border states. i want to hear what they have to say. i actually joined with president george w. bush, he wanted a comprehensive immigration reform, i told him i strongly support him on that. we don't face this issue in vermont. we don't have canadians wanting to come across the border for a better life or better health care system or whatever in the united states. they are pretty comfortable where they are. but that's not the case everywhere. i'm also very worried -- some of the things i hear and some of the blogs xenophobic attitude, kick those foreigners out, probably by somebody who is one or two generations away from being immigrants themselves. that's not what america is about. that's not what attracted my grandparents and great grandparents to this country. so i am perfectly willing whether it's the gang of six, 12, or something, but in the united states senate we need a gang of 51 to get it through and
in time. host: here is a snapshot of politifact's website. we see senator marco rubio being examined. also, phil gingrey in georgia. saul, from new york, on the independent line. caller: since 2008, when john mccain was running for president, republicans have been claiming that if they raise the capital gains taxes, which obama wanted to do, and dividends taxes 15%, that is going to hurt people and retirement plans. they have been scary people that way. elderly people right -- they have been scaring people that way. elie people right now, on their 401 k, everybody knows that when you take money out of the retirement plan, you pay ordinary income taxes. you don't get the 15% tax break that rich people get when they have been outside the retirement plan. nobody has been saying anything about it. no news media, no politicians, no democrats. i would like to hear what he says about that. guest: sure, saul. we have done a lot of fact checks on claims about taxes, and i would interview to go to our website, politifact.com, and then under truth-o-meter -- if it is a factual claim, we will check it
already have prominent senators like marco rubio of florida coming out with proposals very similar to what president obama has called for and a lot of national republicans now saying that they know this is an issue they need to make progress on, as well. to nicolle wallace on this, as well. you also used the word for governor jeb bush of florida, one of those republicans, also saying this is the key to the republican party's future. >> right, and as a republican, marco maybe try to have them topple the power structures here in washington because they understand at a philosophical level, at a policy level and political level that our very survival as a party depends on getting this right and last republican or last president to have really put the power of the oval office behind this push for immigration reform was george w. bush. in hindsight it was a precious moment we let slip through our fingers. then he had senator ten kennedy and senator mccain and george w. bush and those three at the time were giants in washington could get -- couldn't get it done i think illustrates how high that m
